The cost and value of interior design

Interior Design Q&A

The list may include “meat, wine, bread”, but that could mean a burger or filet steak.

We’re sometimes asked how much it will cost for an interior design. But without knowing what level of design is needed, or taking a brief, it’s like asking how much it will cost for a diner party, without having a menu and knowing for how many?

The list may include “meat, wine, bread”, but that could mean a burger or filet steak. Value wine or a vintage label. White sliced bread or an artisan fresh baked loaf? For any interior project, multiply those decisions and you get the picture. Even if we’ve designed basic white tile, everybody's budget level is different. Should we be looking at £10 per sqm ceramic or £100 per sqm quarried stone. When designing a room as complicated as a kitchen or a bathroom, the list could be so extensive that, understandably, they need more time and questions asked to get the best solution. Ideally it would be best to suggest some parameters about what you’re hoping and aiming for, so that a fuller and more focused brief can be discussed and agreed.

We can then advise on the feasibility of your proposed ideas, estimate a design fee, discuss budgets and maybe even plan a schedule for the works. All, so that you end up with something that is thoroughly considered - designed to suit your specific requirements, affordable and achievable.

This is the only way to really know the cost and value of interior design.
